Ambient dialogue[edit]

Quaggan Emissary: Are you here to save your people, too?
Hunting by Moonlight: I'm here to execute Koda's will. If anything, little wise one, our arrival will save you and everyone else.
Quaggan Emissary Quaggan: does not understand, but quaggan likes you anyway.
Priory Arcanist (male asura): I'm interested in how this Koda spirit guides you."
Hunting by Moonlight: It may take several lifetimes before you start understanding. We are as close to divinity as you can get without transcending from this world.
Priory Arcanist (male asura): Divinity? Really?
Hunting by Moonlight: Our leaders, Claw and Voice, are intertwined. One is the body, one the spirit. We need both to absorb Koda's will.
Vigil Quartermaster (female charr): There are many in the legions who still hate those like me.
Whispers Lightbringer (male human): Like you?
Vigil Quartermaster (female charr): Lion's Arch charr. Apparently, we're not traditional enough. Or violent enough.
Whispers Lightbringer (male human): Ridiculous!
Pact Crusader (female norn): Those huge ships that the kodan have are magnificent. It's almost enough to make me learn shipbuilding.
Priory Scribe (male asura): And where would you sail? Look at how much trouble they're in, even with their floating fortresses.
Pact Crusader (female norn): Ah, this trouble won't last forever.
Priory Scribe (male asura): Our lives pass quickly, and though the Eternal Alchemy can wait for more peaceful times, we cannot.
Priory Scribe (male asura): Well, geologically speaking, the water is new to the area. This used to be mountains.
Pact Crusader (female asura): I split on your "geolocistical." The world doesn't change like that.
Priory Scribe (male asura): Dwarves? Mines? Shiverpeaks? History? Do you know nothing?
Pact Crusader (female norn): Relax. Our storytellers say the same thing. I'm just bored. And you're endlessly entertaining.
Whispers Lightbringer (male human): Do the kodan make you nervous?
Pact Crusader (female norn): Nervous? (laugh)
Pact Crusader (female norn): Only if they refuse some good-natured sparring. Then I'd wonder about 'em.
